the negative future

patron saint of
sunlight on chrome, you understand

a better bible for
darker times

spent our days getting high down by
the river while our parents went blind

while mortgages were paid and
daughters raped and i kept telling you
i loved you but
all you did was laugh

all you do is hold out the
hearts of lesser gods like
semi-precious stones

tell me to consider the hundred
million miles of desert
between value and worth

maybe get lucky and
find myself there
